Following a successful year where affiliates of the Cavaliers Sports and Tour Club (CS&TC)
competed in races all across the country, coordinator of the governing entity, Jennifer Major, has disclosed that the future of the sport lies primarily in the area of youth development. Consequently, she said that the club’s main focus will be placed in this direction as executives concentrate on fielding the best local talent for the possible participation in the 2016 Brazil Olympics.
Ms Major noted that 2014 had seen resurgence in the sport with an emergence of young talent. She further stressed that involvement in the sport is the catalyst to the development and preservation of a healthy lifestyle of the youths and as such she has urged more youths to get involved.
“Participation in race walking can serve as a powerful unifying force and no one should desist from such activities,” added the coordinator. She also pointed out that sports play a key role in the lives of individuals as well as the country’s development and has been given support by the past and present administration.
“Even those who have come from poor homes and communities have been able to reach great heights because of equal opportunities enjoyed in sports,” she declared.
Ms Major also pointed out that through the stringent efforts of executives of the CS&TC there has been a resurgence of the sport and the emergence of talent.
Consequently, a race walk coach is expected sometime next year to assist the local entity in a countrywide outreach programme aimed at honing the skills of current racewalkers while recruiting new talent. She said that this is all a part of the preparations as her administrators endeavor to field a competent team of young people to the imminent 2016 Brazil Olympics.
